Vampire by JonHodgson Vampire by JonHodgson
(C)2008 Hachette ltd.

A painting from the partwork "Beasts and Beings".

The classic vampire! Graveyard, bats, big black cloak, fangs!

You can download this image as a screensaver at the Beasts and Beings website: [link]

I'm having a ball working on this magazine, getting to paint some real archetypes of fantasy and myth, as well as learning about some more obscure mythic characters.

tho this is an archetype, it could have been all to easy to make it campy, but he has a very wicked face, im unsettling children as we speak ;)

Thanks I love this comment because it really sums up what I wanted to do - I wanted a bit of campiness, and that's part of what I love about fantasy stuff in general. It is funny and silly in a sense. But then there's also the side of it where sure, this guy wears a cloak and hangs out in graveyards. But he'll also bite your neck and drink all your blood. Which whilst we're all very used to that idea its actually really horrific!

Thanks again! :)
